Back in June my family and I went to Destin, Florida for a week. Below is the view from our 16th floor condo. Such a beautiful sight and beautiful sounds from our balcony!
I won't bore you too much by showing too many vacation photos but thought you might enjoy seeing our nautical decorated bedroom...
and a cute little vignette on the entertainment center in the living room...
Below is the view of the seashore from the swimming pool. We spent a lot of time there (on the beach), as you can imagine.
In between spending time at the shore, we went to Bass Pro Shop...
and had fun photographing the kids with this big ol' thing... (fake of course)
had some wonderful seafood at The Crab Trap, well actually the food made me sick, but anyway!
And of course I got to see some beautiful antiques!! The highlight of my week!
We went to two places, here are a few things from the first place that caught my eye,
a beautiful antique walnut bed...
this sweet little alabaster cherub statue...
a clam full of seashells, which I adore!
and a beautiful etched mirror.
Even more things caught my eye at this second place! It was just wonderful! It was called Antiques on Holiday. What a cute name right?
View as we came down from the second floor...
Lots of beautiful chandeliers, oil paintings,
gilt mirrors, WHITE PEACOCK feathers!!! $450 for those in that brass urn!
This pretty French piece, I forget what you call it...
and these guys caught my eye, (and a closer look at the piece from the above photo).
More wonderful gilt mirrors,
this beautiful peacock jardiniere stand...
more gilt mirrors and oil paintings,
lots and lots of Victorian glass domes, but without the contents! Shoot!! I wanted a bird dome!
And this gorgeous armoire! Believe me, I wanted it all!! But no, I did not buy anything...
but I did come home with precious memories and lots of seashells from our wonderful vacation, and that is enough for me!
See the sweet little embroidered mermaid? I wish I could say that I bought her at one of those Florida antique shops, but I did not.
Thank you so much for your visit and have a great week!
